Welcome again to that time of the month when Zluri is up with some latest product enhancements that will ease your SaaS management. Here is what we have brought you this month.
We are constantly striving toward making your experience in using Zluri better. This month, we have improved all screens to make them load faster. Now, whenever you switch screens within a single module, the page won't be reloaded-making it faster to navigate.
Zluri believes in giving the users control over the data they want to share with Zluri. We had added filters for Quickbooks & Xero last month. Now, we have added filters for Zoho Books, Brex & NetSuite. You can select transaction types that you want Zluri to fetch from your financial systems.
Gartner says approx. 30% of the software spend is wasted due to insufficient management. One way to reduce SaaS spend is to identify and eliminate redundant SaaS applications. But discovering all the applications used in the company and identifying redundant apps is not only a time-consuming process but many times not possible at all when managing SaaS licenses data in spreadsheets.
Zluri solves this problem with its industry-leading SaaS discovery methods and the largest SaaS library. You can just download the ‘Redundant Apps’ report to get the list of all unused, underused, and orphaned applications, along with their alternate applications, the number of users using the applications, and the spend on them. This will help you consolidate applications and reduce your SaaS spend.
Now you can add Zluri Entity type custom fields to all Zluri entities. These can be useful when you wish to add any information linking to other entities in Zluri.
For example, if you wish to add another owner to an application, you can create a custom field of the type used for applications and add the owner to the applications. You can also sort & filter based on the entity types.
This month we have added 20 new apps to our ever-growing library of direct integrations.
With our integration with these applications, you will be able to get visibility into their usage, users and the value it brings to your organization
We are constantly working towards improving our product and bringing more value to our users. We are rolling out new features every month to make your SaaS management experience smooth and easy.
We have more updates on our plate awaiting you in the coming months. Stay tuned until then. If you have any feedback, let us know.
